    Congrats on the new anoles. I will let axe answer on the sexing, thats his speciality.

    Since you already have a green one, they are about the same for stressing as the brown, once they are use to you, they clam down alot. Just be easy the first few days as they settle in to this big change, they will get real dark when stressed or on the alert and try to hide.

    How old? if babies you have a better change of them adapting to you and not being afraid, we raised several babies from eggs then turned them loose on our lanai and outside patio and still when they were several months old, a year later they come up to us... LOL they know we toss handfuls of 2 week old crickets out :)

    Hey there,

    Brown anoles are a LOT easier to sex than green anoles. They have VERY distinct patterns.

    Here's a pic of two of our babies. Male is above, female is below.

    As you can see, the difference between the two is obvious.

    Hope this helps :)
